Seldom has there beent in Laur'ens
a wedldinig of such rare beauty, char
acterIzed by elegance and simplicity,
as was that of Miss May Little, eldest
daughtci' of Capt. and Mrs. J. R. Lit
tIe, andl Mr. Roderick IT. McDonald,
of Columbia, on the evening of the
23 lust, at. the First Pi'esbyterian
church of this city. Under the skill
.ful supei'visioin of Mrs. W. D. Feirgu
eon, assisted by thue bridesmaids and
-a few frIends, the church was madec
particularly attractive for the occa
sion. The decoirations. were simple,
consisting of a white background with
a profusion of ivy gracefully clinglig
to the fimy folds of white cloth that
covored the woodwork above and
around the altar, back of which had
geeni erected a beautiful pyramid of
tialms, ferns and other greent pot
plants. Arouiid the railing which en
circled the choir loft was numbers of
lighted wax candles and to the rear
of the chancel on either side of the
massive pipe organ, were rows of
.lighted candles. Above all was sus
iiended from the ceiling an arch of
filmy' white not, reaching to each side
of the choir railing from the center of
'whtch hung a large bouquet of white
roses and asparagus ferns; all pro
senting a scheme of unrivaled beauty.
Long before the hour of the mar
aa4 the church was filled with rela
tived and friends of the contracting
partes. 'Promptly at 6:30 o'clock,
'the e hiln strains of Lohengrin's
wedding march under the skillful
tuich of Mrs. Luther Roper, heralded
the approach of the bridal party.
First in order, wore Miss Doroas
stOAln and Ut. .lob I4ttl., of Zau
rens, marching down opposite aisles
of the church, crossing in front of the
altar and mounting the platform in
front of the organ. Next were Miss
Mab61 Wallace, of Greenville, and
Mr. Randolph Little, Miss Jennie Mc
Donald of Columbia, and Mr. W. W.
Ilarris, of Clinton, Miss Linda Thoip
son of Anderson and Mr. Harry White
of Spartanburg. Miss Mattie Ban
Browning of Goldville and Mr. >D. A.
Pressly of Columbia.
The bridesmaids all wore beautiful
dresses alternating in white and pink,
fashioned along modish lines, some
with lace drapporlos and others drap
ed in chiffon, carrying bouquets of
carnations tied with white and pink
tulle. Following the bridesmaids and
groomsmen, came the dame of honor,
Mrs. W. D. Ferguson, beautifully and
elegantly attired in white lace, mod
ish dress over white crepe meteor,
embellished 'in pearl trimmings, car
rying white carnations. The dame
was followed by two maids of honor,
Misses Ina 13. Little, sister of the
bride, and Miss Nannie Kate Iud
gens, both handsomely attired in mo
dish dresses of white crepe do chene
with trains and carrying bourquet3 of
white carnations. Closely following
the maids of honor, were first little
Isloulse Clardy, the ring bearer, car
rying the ring in the heart of a pure,
white lily; then the little flower g;iIs,
Floride Moore and' Katherine Mong,
holding dainty little baskets filled
with sweet scented flowers to scatter
in the Wath of the bride. The little
girls were all beautifully dressed in
white lace dresses over pure white
silk, and did their part with that
childlike -simplicity which always
lends interest to a wedding. Lastly
entered the bride, handsomely attired
in white crepe meteor, with a ion.
veil of tulle gracefully adjusted to
the head. She wore at her neck :a
handsome "bow knot" of pearls, a gift
of the groom. She was leaniag on
the arm of her brother, Mr. buy .\.
Little, who gave her away.
They were met at the altar by the
groom and his best man, MIr. S. 'T.
Pressly. The beautiful and lr ies
sive ring ceremony was used by the
ofliciating minister, Rev. C. F' Ran
kin, pastor of the bride. Mirs. Hour,
at the organ , rendered soft, sweet
music during the ceremony. the
strains of which lent a quiet beauty
to the occasion.
